Resilience is like having a superpower to bounce back when things get tough. It's a mix of two things: strengths, which are the things you're naturally good at, and habits, which are the things you do regularly.
Imagine your strengths as your special skills. You may be good at solving problems, talking to people, or staying calm under pressure. When you use these skills during tough times, it's like using your superpower to handle problems.
Now, habits are like the routines you do every day. If you make a habit of using your strengths, it becomes automatic-like second nature. For example, if you're great at solving problems, and you make it a habit to approach challenges with a positive attitude, you're building resilience without even thinking about it.
So, being resilient is both having these special skills (strengths) and making a habit of using them. When you play to your strengths and make it a habit, it's like having a secret weapon against life's challenges. You become better at facing tough situations, and it's not just because you're strong, but because you've turned being strong into a regular part of who you are.
